If it is tying up your gear so nothing else can be done on it, you had better be charging.

Where we're likely to disagree is on the rate for that service.

For pure rendering, unattended, you could charge less than you would for shooting, or editing, than for being present and entering metadata /logging footage.

Personally, I think if you are present and doing logging on ingest, that's really the first level of raw editing, and I would charge an editing rate for it.

If I can do other productive work while keeping one eye on a render, that's probably a discounted rate. But never free. I generally fold in the time to ingest and log as part of the complete edit quote, adjusting the hourly rate to include and pro-rate it.
